Wayne Rooney celebrated surpassing 150 Manchester United goals by hailing the side's performance against Arsenal as simply 'incredible'.
The striker heads into international duty for England next week by playing arguably some of the best football of his career.
Rooney bagged a stunning hat-trick to inspire Sir Alex Ferguson's side to an 8-2 rout of Arsenal at Old Trafford.
During an avalanche of goals, Rooney surpassed the landmark goals tally as Ashley Young (two), Danny Welbeck, Nani and Park Ji-sing all got their names on the scoresheet to inflict Arsene Wenger's biggest Premier League defeat as Arsenal boss.
"The performance today was incredible and we deserved the result," Rooney told Sky Sports 1.
"Whether or not Arsenal have a full-strength squad every time we play them we have a go and try to score.
"They had some players out but that should take nothing away from us."
Rooney's landmark goal also continued a trend against the Gunners.
"A lot of my milestone goals have come against Arsenal," he added.
"My first goal when I was at Everton was against them and my first United goal in the Premier League came against them too."
